Traditional female pottery from North Morocco (Rif).

Berber women use ancestral techniques to handcraft small animal sculptures.

Those animals made of terra cotta are genuine tribal pieces of art. Geometric or abstract patterns embellish the sculptures. Simultaneous art and craft, each primitive African pottery is one-of-a-kind.

With warm earthy shades, the motifs are tone-on-tone.

Women solely craft the modeled potteries. They usually make functional objects for rural life (pots and vessels used to carry water, drink, or preserve food). Berber women also build animal potteries to delight children.

Why I love them:

I love these one-of-a-kind figurines so much. They add a dash of unconventional style to a space.

Dimensions : 7″x4″x3″ — 18x11xh8 cm

Discover the proud horse, the strong buffalo, and the funny elephant.

The animal sculptures are handmade and are likely to have some imperfections that guarantee their authenticity.
